Study Notes

Mitosis Phases

  • During prometaphase, the nuclear envelope breaks down, and the chromosomes condense and become visible as separate structures.
  • The classic chromosome structure appears during prophase.

Cell Cycle and Mitosis

  • The main outcome of mitosis is the production of two daughter cells that are genetically identical to the parent cell.
  • The replication of a cell's DNA occurs during the S (synthesis) phase of the cell cycle.
  • Many eukaryotic cells duplicate approximately every 24 hours, meaning the frequency of cell duplication is roughly once a day.
